Focusing on popular regional areas, National Geographic(R)'s Weekend Explorer 3D map software lets weekend warriors plan, print and play! Software package contains both PC and Mac versions for full compatibility across platforms. Includes seamless 1:24,000 scale USGS maps for the detail needed to plan weekend voyages. Users can create or trace over existing trails and get elevation profiles, GPS waypoints and even see the trail in 3D. 3-D rendering technology creates virtual relief maps that you can "fly through" or view alongside 2-D maps, letting you preview your hike and views. Live map update feature downloads the latest information for your defined area, ensuring you are always armed with the most up-to-date data. Traveling tool zooms and scrolls the map in any direction; each map has four zoom levels, including a National Geographic Atlas level. Software can determine the exact latitude/longitude and elevation of any point on the map, a feature that helps easily create usable GPS waypoints. Enhanced 3-D digital shading emphasizes changes in elevation, making the maps easier to read and use; shading toggles on and off. Add routes, symbols and text to customize your map; attach note boxes, web links and photos to the objects you place on the map. Select the exact area you need and print a photo-quality custom map on any ink-jet or laser printer or plotter. Transfer your custom waypoint and route information directly to or from most handheld GPS units. Print waterproof trail maps on National Geographic Adventure Paper (sold separately) to take along on your trips. Powerful search function finds trails, camps and campgrounds, lakes and ponds, parks, cities and towns, USGS 7.5' quad names and much more. Export images in standard raster formats (JPG, GIF, etc.) for use in other applications.
